When Hope Calls Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, the second season of the series hasn’t been renewed. So, there is no information regarding the release date of When Hope Calls. However, that doesn’t mean that the show is canceled either. The production is keeping silent about the second season of the series. Still, considering that the first season ended with a cliffhanger, we have reasons to believe that the second season will definitely happen. Fans are beginning to wonder whether the pandemic is to be blamed for the delay. But considering that other series of Hallmark weren’t affected, we can say that the delay has nothing to do with the pandemic. There are chances that after the When Calls The Heart season 8 ends in May, the production will reveal news about the renewal of the second season.
